What’s In Your Medicine
USP background: Empowering a healthy tomorrow
A healthier world needs a strong foundation – one that establishes quality, sets the bar forscientific rigor and technological progress, and epitomizes collaboratio
n between industry, nonprofits, government, and academia. From the standards we create to the partnerships and conversations we foster, our scientists, advocates, and network of experts are critical to constructing and reinforcing this foundation to en
sure people stay healthy. Every day, the health community confidently builds upon our ongoing work, supplying, manufacturing, and distributing medicines; making hospital systems more effective; meeting health provider, patient, and consumer needs; creating policies; allocating resources and responding to crisis situations. An independent nonprofit, we continue to expand our reach and impact to draw us closer
to a world where everyone can be confident of quality in health and healthcare.
This presentation will provide an overview of the various scientific approaches necessary to maintain up-to-date compendia, including case studies that will provide a unique insight into what it takes to deliver high-quality health products to your home.
